I am Now A Groovy Gurl... OFFICIALLY! and...a confession

OK... time for me to come clean. I have an obsession with asylums. It is really a HUGE obsession and I especially LOVE this one as it is in my hometown of Buffalo, NY. It is the Buffalo State Hospital for the Insane. I was in Buffalo about 4 years ago and my sister,my mother and I went to go and see it. We walked around it and that building has a PULSE!!! It was built by H.H. Richardson and completed in the 1880's. It is what you think of when you think of an institution like this. My heart truly goes out to all of the people that went there as patients and the people that worked there to try and help them.
That being said... I was just chosen as a designer for Stamp Insanity. I figure I would combine my two obsessions and, when I post a creation using their products to my blog, I will feature an old and abandoned asylum. There may be others out there like me...follow me if you like these structures too.
Now you know the REAL reason I call this my RUBBER ROOM!!!
